joe brings up a good point by pulling up this older song and seeing how the whole idea of action item from 2009 to now doesnt add up at all. which is why FT is changing our name and taking a similar direction musically. look at it as being less of a boy band and more of just a better product, that winds up looking like a boy band a little.. unfortunately an EP of songs based off guitar distortion doesnt pay the bills.. if you dont believe me go pull up old floral terrace soundscans from 2008-2009.. theres not enough support.. its not punk enough for this websites listeners and its not polished enough for allstar weekend fans so bands like ours needed to make a choice, either call our band "rise or die trying" and cowrite with tom denny or polish our fuckin band..
Why do you need to make a choice? Write what you want to write; if it has legs it'll find a way to pay your bills and more. We're all poor doing this but once you sacrifice how or what you write for the sake of anyone else, or if you get to the point where your music to you is a "product", then you've already sold out before you've sold anything.
